Birds are singing, Bees are buzzing, daffodils, Japanese Magnolias, red buds and Narcissus are blooming. Oh and yes the air conditioners are buzzing too. We are headed to the Lake for some R and R. So what if it is twenty minutes down the road. We have a cabin and three days to pretend we are in Florida. lol Sandy is not up for a long trip yet. If it is still snowing in your area just know there is a Spring on the way. Please don't hate me. ShirleytThumb of 2011-02-27/shirley/ceb29d

Speak a little softer
And work a little louder
Shoot less with more care
And sing a little sweeter
And love a little longer
And soon you will be there.

It was nice here today. Rain came tonight, big storms to follow later. That's the negative side of spring I guess.

I could never hate you Shirley. I can not see those tiny pictures though. Over here at Cubits we can post several pictures in one post.
I think you get to grow what Mother Nature allows.
I am hoping to propagate coleus next fall down here in Okeechobee.

OK, I'm jealous. We had a week a real warmth, temps in the 60s and 70s. Now the cold is back for a week, with highs in the 40s and lows in the 20s. Blah!

But I am why Down South In Dixie, and you are way up there. When I am scorching your weather will be perfect. When you have beautiful leaves we will be brown when you have snow we will be brown. lol This is truly the best time of year here and I enjoy it immensely. I am gonna go get my coleus soon and then I will be set. Amaryllis are starting to bloom and the roses have lots of buds and will be next along with oleander and magnolias . I love my simple country corner. The living is easy way down yonder close to New Orleans. I will post more as the season wears on just to let you know Spring Is just around the corner for you too. Enjoy shirleyt

I wanted to give a special hello to Pheadra. Did you get your green house up and running again. I cried for your loss. I know how much you loved it. Sugarweed, we are going to Dunedin soon but that is still hours from you. sadness. I thought sure it was much closer and we could take your tour. We would need to add a day especially for a run over. We are thinking about it. It will depend on how well Sandy does on the drive down. I do not understand the problem with the pics for you, they should come full page with a click. Does anyone else have problems?? shirleyt

My coleus have outgrown my lighted shelves, both in size and number. Some are getting by just on window light which isn't so hot in my house. I need to move some outside so I hope the weather cooperates soon.

Oh, and Shirley, you can have my snow any day! I hate winter. Our winters are pretty cold and sometimes pretty snowy. And our summers are probably much hotter and more humid than you think.

I guess it's time I say hello. HELLO! LOL

I've been popping in and out of here reading for quite some time. I can't remember when I joined. I try to be careful about posting and where I post because I have so much going on and often I feel guilty if I don't get back to post again. It's not that I don't miss everyone, I just spread myself too thin. Funny coming from a fat chick. hehehe Wish I could really spread myself thin!

I see some of my favorite girls posing on here. :)

Pheadra, what happened? What are you rebuilding?? It sounds like it wasn't good.

Hey sugar! Love ya! Good to find out where you were hiding.

Hi Karen. We've crossed paths several times but I don't think we've actually talked.

Lovely photos and blooms Shirley! I'm jealous.

Hello onewish! Nice to see you.

Well, I've just come in from a long day of transplanting seedlings and I'm trying to get them all finished before cuttings come in and before other things outgrow their pots. LOL

Nice to see and meet you all!

Howdy Chele, Shirley, and everyone.
I am sorta settled at the tippy top of Lake Okeechobee, Fl.
Many are telling me I will be too hot here this Summer.
We'll see.
I got 17 rooted coleus from Rosy Dawn and am expecting 19 from Gebharts this next week.
I have a deck now and am planting rail planters to adorn it. My cousin is visiting from Borger, Texas.
When I take her to Ft Lauderdale to fly back to Tx I am picking up Marsue 4 hours later for a week long visit.
I got 6 30" planters and all but my herb one will be mixed plantings.
DC and I are going out on the lake early in the morning.
Okeechobee is a small town with few bright lights. The stars all look like bright jewels in the night sky.
Sidney

Here are my beauties that I got today. The nursery did not have a large choice. I was not too happy about that. I will try to get some from school Tuesday. There was not a trailer in site and I really wanted trailing Linda. Thumb of 2011-04-03/shirley/5dd1ad
